A new project for South East Europe called South East Europe Neighbourhood Safe Routes (SENSOR) has been proposed by 14 countries – Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Moldova, FYROM, Montenegro Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
The SENSOR proposal builds on outstanding cooperation between authorities, automobile clubs and universities in the region in measuring and mapping the safety of roads. So far, with EU and development bank support, safety rating results have been developed by half the countries involved, mostly on trans-European E-routes. Two countries, Serbia and Moldova, have already applied iRAP techniques and are implementing results in bank funded projects. The SENSOR project now proposes taking safety rating to the next level across the region. SENSOR proposes inspection of up to 20,000 kms of priority routes including at least 50% of E-routes in participating countries. It proposes preparing “bank ready” investment plans that can save the most lives for the money available and strong public engagement.
The SENSOR is the largest inspection programme outside Mexico. Huge support for SENSOR has been pledged by 16 organisations representing 14 SEE countries including charities and Universities, Ministries and Roads Agencies who can help implement recommendations. A response to the proposal to the EU submitted by Make Roads Safe Hellas on behalf of all the partners is expected in the first half of 2012.трековые светильники horozлучший планшетmedical translation company
